I see that even now and I'm starting to look into it ... interestingly 
enough ss3 is chugging along fine ...

That's the long term plan .. including SS3, but we have to set aside 
some time to to do the conversion and provide some warning to current 
users .... It looks like Paul DeBruicker and I have been the only 
committers to GemSource in the last two years (GemSource is slow but not 
down), so we probably can skip the warning period for GemSource....

In the long run Rowan will make needing to bootstrap from mcz files 
obsolete --- I expect that with Rowan we should be able to directly 
bootstrap from the git repositories ... In the last couple of years I 
moved the projects required for GLASS to github, so the direct bootstrap 
is pretty close ready --- just need Rowan (which has consuming most of 
my time for the last couple of years as well:)

Given the number of older versions of GemStone in use out there, we just 
can't take GemSource offline ...but replacing GemSource with webdav will 
be good enough.

That would be cool ...so I think that we need an mcz scraper script that 
can be run against the GemSource repository to harvest the mcz files and 
create a project-based directory structure --- I figure that will be the 
fastest route. GemSource is running on Seaside 2.7? and I haven't looked 
at the source code for GemSource in over a decade ... although if you 
wanted to spelunk around in the smalltalk code for GemSource, I'm sure 
we could arrange something:0

Anyway, if you've got the time let's work out some of the details off 
list and I will find out about the timing of setting up an alternate
